Embodiment 1

A device embodiment of an electronic cigarette is provided according to the embodiment of the present disclosure.

FIG. 1 is a structural diagram of an electronic cigarette according to an embodiment of the present disclosure. As shown in FIG. 1, the electronic cigarette includes a cigarette rod 10 and a cigarette cartridge 20. Further, the cigarette rod 10 includes: a battery 102 and a controller 104 connected with the battery 102; the cigarette cartridge 20 includes: an atomizer 202 (including a heating wire) and a recognition information provider component 204 connected with the atomizer 202, wherein the atomizer 202 is connected with the controller 104 via the recognition information provider component 204, wherein whether the cigarette rod 10 and the cigarette cartridge 20 in the electronic cigarette are matched is recognized according to the following process: the recognition information provider component 204 is configured to send recognition information to the controller 104, and the controller 104 is configured to judge, according to the received recognition information, whether the cigarette rod 10 and the cigarette cartridge 20 are matched, and if so, allows the atomizer 202 to work normally; otherwise, the controller 104 executes alarming or prohibits the atomizer 202 from working normally.

In use, specific recognition information may be stored in advance in the recognition information provider component 204. After the cigarette rod 10 and the cigarette cartridge 20 are connected, the recognition information provider component 204 communicates with the controller 104. Specifically, the recognition information provider component 204 sends the specific recognition information to the controller 104 by means of pulse sequences. At the moment, the controller 104 receives these pulse sequences, and decodes the pulse sequences, so as to obtain recognition information (e.g. an Identification (ID) number and so on) of the cigarette cartridge 20 to recognize whether cigarette cartridge 20 and the cigarette rod 10 are matched, and if so, allows the electronic cigarette to work. At the moment, a smoker may use the electronic cigarette normally. Otherwise, the electronic cigarette gives an alarm so as to prompt the smoker that the electronic cigarette cannot be used normally. Or the electronic cigarette does not give the alarm, and is directly prohibited from working normally. In this way, the cigarette rod 10 may be matched with a cigarette cartridge 20 of the same brand, or even of the same model, thereby improving the effect in using the electronic cigarette, prolonging the service life of the electronic cigarette and improving the effect in quitting smoking of electronic cigarette.

As shown in FIG. 1, the controller 104 includes: a first interface A1, the recognition information provider component 204 includes: a second interface B1, and the atomizer 202 includes: a first end C1, wherein the first interface A1, the second interface B1 and the first end C1 are all connected with a ground wire or a power wire.

The controller 104 further includes: a third interface A2, the recognition information provider component 204 further includes: a fourth interface B2, and the atomizer 202 further includes: a second end C2, wherein the third interface A2, the fourth interface B2 and the second end C2 may be connected according to the following method: the fourth interface B2 is connected with the third interface A2, a connection line therebetween is a first connection line l, and the second end C2 is connected with the third interface A2.

In this connection manner, the pulse sequences corresponding to the recognition information (e.g. the ID number) stored in the recognition information provider component 204 in the cigarette cartridge 20 are generated on the first connection line l and the ground wire (or the power wire), so as to enable the controller 104 of the cigarette rod 10 to read the pulse sequences, decode the pulse sequences, and verify whether the cigarette cartridge 20 and the cigarette rod 10 are matched.

Alternatively, in the case that the fourth interface is connected with the third interface, and the second end is connected with the third interface, the controller controls the atomizer to work normally if the cigarette rod and the cigarette cartridge are matched. Otherwise, the controller executes alarming or prohibits the atomizer from working normally.

By means of the embodiment, the cigarette rod 10 automatically recognizes whether the cigarette cartridge 20 is matched with the cigarette rod when the cigarette rod and the cigarette cartridge are connected, thereby achieving the purpose of using the cigarette rod 10 and the cigarette cartridge 20 in the electronic cigarette in a matched manner, preventing mix use of the cigarette rod 10 with a cigarette cartridge 20 of a different brand, or mix use with a replica of the cigarette cartridge 20, so as to implement the technical effect of enabling the smoker to use the electronic cigarette properly to improve an application safety factor of the electronic cigarette, improve the effect in using the electronic cigarette, prolong the service life of the electronic cigarette, and improve the effect in quitting smoking.

Alternatively, as shown in FIG. 1, the cigarette rod 10 further includes: a microphone structure D and the controller 104 is arranged in the microphone structure D. The microphone structure D not only has a decoding function, but also has basic functions of the electronic cigarette, such as functions including detection of an inhaling action, and driving the heating wire in the atomizer 202 to generate heat and charge electricity and so on.

Alternatively, the recognition information may be transmitted in a form of an electric signal. Specific content and principles are the same as those in the foregoing embodiment and will not be repeated here.

Alternatively, the electric signal carries at least one of brand information, model information and production batch information of the cigarette cartridge. The controller in the microphone structure may effectively adjust an electric current of smoking according to the electric signal, so as to control an amount of discharged smoke, thereby ensuring the effect in using the electronic cigarette.

Alternatively, the recognition information provider component may include: a capacitor, wherein the capacitor charges and discharges in the case that the cigarette rod and the cigarette cartridge are connected. During the discharging process, the capacitor functions as a power source to provide electric energy for the cigarette rod to recognize the cigarette cartridge. In this way, the recognition process of the recognition information provider component may be powered without an external power source, thus simplifying a circuit structure so that the electronic cigarette is able to be manufactured into a large cigarette with a relatively large volume, and may be also manufactured into a small cigarette with a relatively small volume.

Embodiment 2

The controller 104 further includes: a third interface A2, the recognition information provider component 204 further includes: a fourth interface B2, and the atomizer 202 further includes: a second end C2, wherein the third interface A2, the fourth interface B2 and the second end C2 may be connected by the following method: the fourth interface B2 is connected with the third interface A2, a connection line therebetween is a first connection line l and the second end C2 is connected with the third interface A2.

In this connection manner, pulse sequences corresponding to the recognition information (e.g. an ID number) stored in the recognition information provider component 204 in the cigarette cartridge 20 are generated on the first connection line l and the ground wire (or the power wire), so as to enable the controller 104 of the cigarette rod 10 to read the pulse sequences, decode the pulse sequences, and verify whether the cigarette cartridge 20 and the cigarette rod 10 are matched.

In use, specific recognition information may be stored in advance in the recognition information provider component 204. After the cigarette rod 10 and the cigarette cartridge 20 are connected, the recognition information provider component 204 communicates with the controller 104. Specifically, the recognition information provider component 204 sends the specific recognition information to the controller 104 by means of pulse sequences. At the moment, the controller 104 receives these pulse sequences, and decodes the pulse sequences, so as to obtain recognition information (e.g. an ID number and so on) of the cigarette cartridge 20 to recognize whether cigarette cartridge 20 and the cigarette rod 10 are matched, and if so, allows the electronic cigarette to work. At the moment, a smoker may use the electronic cigarette normally. Otherwise, the electronic cigarette gives an alarm so as to prompt the smoker that the electronic cigarette cannot be used normally. Or the electronic cigarette does not give the alarm, and is directly prohibited from working. In this way, the cigarette rod 10 may be matched with a cigarette cartridge 20 of the same brand, or even of the same model, thereby prolonging the service life of the electronic cigarette and improving the effect in quitting smoking of the electronic cigarette.

By means of the embodiment, the cigarette rod 10 automatically recognizes whether the cigarette cartridge 20 is matched with the cigarette rod when the cigarette rod and the cigarette cartridge are connected, thereby achieving the purpose of using the cigarette rod 10 and the cigarette cartridge 20 in the electronic cigarette in a matched manner, preventing mix use of the cigarette rod 10 with a cigarette cartridge 20 of a different brand, or mix use with a replica of the cigarette cartridge 20, so as to implement the technical effect of enabling the smoker to use the electronic cigarette properly to improve an application safety factor of the electronic cigarette, prolong the service life of the electronic cigarette, and improve the effect in quitting smoking.

It needs to be noted that the cigarette rod in the second embodiment is the same as cigarette rod on the electronic cigarette in the first embodiment, and will not be repeated here.
